Heaven Lake

The starting hexagram #10:
"Steps"

The meaning of hexagram #10

This simple looking hexagram relates to circumstances which might be inherently risky. In most cases treading in dangerous places is inadvisable. At this time however, there is very little danger. It is written in the ancient Book of Changes that "One steps on the tail of a tiger at his or her own risk" but the appearance of this hexagram suggests that right now such an act would be ignored (or even seen as playful). A more general reference here could be a mingling of people belonging to different social backgrounds. This sign is typically positive.


The changing lines between hexagram 10 and hexagram 34

Changing line #3

"A One Eyed Man Still Sees"- This changing line near the middle of the hexagram is a reminder that the capacity to do something adequately is very different from the capacity to succeed at doing something well. If we attempt to do something when our abilities are not at their peak, we flirt with disaster at this time.

Changing line #5

"Determination in the Face of Danger"- The brave individual does not ignore danger, and move forward fearlessly. The brave individual is intensely aware of the danger and the fear and presses forward despite them. Character is the measure of awareness and action. To ignore danger is to fail. To allow danger to overcome one is to fail. Awareness is truth.

Changing line #6

"Look to Your Conduct"- A change in this line at the top of the hexagram is simply a reminder that the ends do not justify the means. One's overall conduct throughout a process is extremely important. Victory is achievable. But a higher level of victory is the one in which the whole process has been conducted with honor.


The future hexagram #34:
"Great Power"

The meaning of hexagram #34

As if thunder and lightning are your allies, this hexagram implies great strength. This is a time to summon your determination and feel your own fortitude. Trust your momentum and your reputation will grow. Pay attention to details and follow through with your intentions, projects and ideas. New allies will surface as you extend your influence into uncharted lands. Helpful solutions will come to you. Let your vision and higher purpose be your compass.
